JD CROW – 38′ Atkin Cutter (1987)

Thank you, Ted and Judy! We weren’t sure what to expect when we built it, and the participation and connection from you all is what has made it so special and gratifying.

Thank you, Dale! I am honored to have such a wonderful and unique example of so many BC traditions. I miss you, bud. I’m sad I can’t play at the Oarlock and Sail Club with you. But whenever I can, I’ll be coming up. I dream of a giant, spontaneous raft up a la Poor Man’s Rock, once again reunited with our water family.

CONNY – 28′ Coaching Launch (1932)

Kirk - In the myopia of organizing the Show, I somehow missed this one until now - this is SO COOL! I was a rowing coach for many years, and if I'd seen this prior I would've scuttled my Stillwater coaching catamaran and insisted that I get something like CONNY. What a magnificent boat, with incomparable provenance. Thank you for sharing her! Also, I live on Puget Sound and would love to connect to see if we can make a full Off Center Harbor video on her someday - let me know if you'd be up for it.

TOMTE – 46′ Converted Salmon Troller (1947)

It all started about 2 weeks into our 3-week "Race" to Alaska aboard a 17' open dinghy. In Tolmie Channel, rowing a sailboat slowly across glass-calm water, appreciating sporadic waterfalls and that - for now - at least it wasn't pouring rain. A sweet troller chugged up the channel, and the other R2AKer we were buddy-boating with said "Hey, I know that boat from Sidney!" As the troller pulled abeam and slowed, we saw that she was called TOMTE, with a radiant Angel of a woman waving from the deck. The Angel was giving us encouragement in that perfect, optimistic...

Thanks Diane! I would HIGHLY recommend the pilothouse. It is such a wonderful perch, rain, snow, or shine, underway or moored. I'm not sure about the name of the Eric Jrs, but I need to add this to the description: when I asked the builder Ron why the Crow wasn't going to one of his daughters, he said "well, amazingly enough, a few years ago she found my Eric Jr on craigslist and bought it!"

Thanks, Rich! Alaska first, as soon as possible. Oceans are a big TBD in my book.
